What amazes me is that you cannot tolerate when people say the 1Plus2 is a bit expensive considering ergonomics and build quality, but when it is for OTHER products, then we can talk about price. Your reasoning is very one sided.
seems you got an issue with me?
no, i am not saying Terra is so expensive... what i am saying Terra offers no GUI, only wav and costs as much as b-mod AK120
frankly speaking i was nearly to buy Terra before i found out that only WAV is allowed. then Terra became a history for me.
do you need any more clear answer to stop teasing me for 1p2 and price.
if i would use portable audio at least 30% for all music listen then i would have bought Ak120 b-mod with good amp long ago. but i listen to portable only 10% ... so hope you can see my point.
i do not doubt Terra must sound amazing based on all responses. but i told you what stopped me. i can skimp GUI but only wav was a real stopper.
also i must clarify another issue, size wise i am less sensitive and AK gives a lot of portability without amp. however i use my portable setup mostly in office, on plane, on train, in hotel, and sometimes at home... for this reason i am less concerned about carrying it with me and size. for sure i do not like bricky portable but AK standalone is very nice and fits so easily and IF i want truly portable then iPod nano or old trusty lighter size Cowon is what i would take for Gym and similar.
i considered price of Terra as Ok until recently when the dude making this hiked price nearly twice. still this was not the major issue as concerns me, but only wav was a real disappointment made me nearly cry. i am not a masoch and do not want convert all my 750G of flacs into wav.
